##### Playmaker Help / Exit Raycast 2D?[SOLVED]
« on: September 27, 2018, 01:02:50 PM »
How can I detect if an object exits a Raycast? I was hoping there would be an On Exit function like other collision detection actions. Sorry if I'm missing something simple.

This works thanks. It felt like I was over-complicating the question so i'm glad there's a simple solution.

##### Playmaker Help / Rotate a sprite with an arrow in Z from Horizontal and Vertical Axis?

How do I convert X and Y Input Axis to a Z rotation on a sprite. I want the arrow sprite to rotate in the same direction as the analog stick.

Yeah, that makes sense. So I guess my question is a math question. how do I calculate the vector i need to plug into 'set velocity' to move in the direction of another position? I want an object to move to another object using physics.  This would be a super useful custom action!

I'm not good at maths.

If I want to move a physics2d game object to a desired x and y how do I know how much x and y to apply force to move in the direction of the object? Is there an easy way to do this? Similar to Move To action but physics based.

Hi I need to get the name of the 2d physics material on a game object. Is that possible?

##### Playmaker Help / Re: Game Feel When Hitting Enemy- Pausing time for split second. [SOLVED]

Good point I could tweak the animations too. Thanks

##### Playmaker Help / Game Feel When Hitting Enemy- Pausing time [SOLVED]
« on: March 24, 2018, 12:49:08 PM »
In a lot of games when you hit an enemy or are hit, it holds the screen for a few frames. What's the best practice of this in playmaker.

Should I use Scale time to 0 with a Wait action of like 0.2 or something?
Or is there a better way to freeze the screen shortly?

Thanks

##### Playmaker Help / Re: Can I combine two different global events/variable files from 2 projects?

Cool, thanks!

Thanks, DJayDino!

Why is it best practice to minimize global variables? It seems easiest if Prefabs just grab a global variable, rather than going through more actions to find out that info from a scene object.

Thanks

##### Playmaker Help / Re: int range switch still available?

Yep! Random Float and Float Switch.

The one in the video is a custom action, not included in playmaker out of the box.

You could use Random Int, set it between 2 and 5 and then run that int through an Int Switch, which will send an event in that range.

Random Event Action is handy too.
